The longplay for this game was recorded by NPI - who was the one that discovered this undumped
Amiga game on Ebay. So we went ahead and bought it for 892,- Euro to get it released and preserved!
NPI´s comment about the longplay:
No music or sound effects. An extremely rare graphics & text adventure which was not dumped until now. It is really hard to figure out what to do, because of the amount of one time commands (such as shave, bless, pick, dip, vault etc...) and using nonsense logic to advance. Sometimes you get a hint for what should be done, such as at one point you need to type the commands "hop", "skip", "jump" (40:00), but the blue mask earlier in the game gives you that hint. Sometimes you have no clue what to do and you can only guess, like typing "jump" 20 times (42:16) to get the axe. One interesting moment, unessential for advancing, is at 35:12 where you should pick beans (although they are never mentioned, you need to guess what vegetables grow in the garden) and bury the beans for an easter egg (not literally easter egg!).
